A glimmer of hope?

A propos of nothing (hint: not really nothing), here's Canada's last 10 results against Mexico outside of Mexico.

LOCATION DATE COMP CAN MEX WDL?
Edmonton 2008-10-15 WCQ 2 2 D
Toronto 2000-11-14 WCQ 0 0 D
San Diego 2000-02-19 GC 2 1 W (aet)
Edmonton 1997-10-12 WCQ 2 2 D
Toronto 1993-05-09 WCQ 1 2 L
Los Angeles 1993-06-10 GC 1 3 L
Los Angeles 1991-03-14 Friendly 0 3 L
Vancouver 1990-03-13 Friendly 2 1 W
Victoria 1988-04-12 Friendly 1 0 W
Vancouver 1988-04-14 Friendly 1 1 D

3 wins. 4 draws. 3 losses. 50-50.

Sure, these are matches for the full national teams of both countries, not U23 or other youth sides, but these results show that Canada has been competitive against the region's strongest nation when the Mexicans are playing away from home.
